Hi Ladyfitzgerald, Below are where the settings are in IE11 and Firefox, if it helps at all.

IE11

Internet Options

Connections

LAN Settings

Mine has always been checked to automatically detect settings, but it will show if you have manual proxy
settings

Firefox

Options

Advanced

Network - Settings it will tell you also the proxy settings.

Thanks for that clarification. I'm using IE11 and it shows no manual proxy settings. Also, it is checked to automatically detect settings.

A long time ago I had two wiring problems with DSL.

1. They replaced the wiring from the pole to the house and changed the box on the house and it solved the problem for a while.

2. The other time after checking the wiring from the new box on the house to my modem and replacing it solved the problem.

You don't really have a lot of entries so i'm not actually sure if that's your problem but disabling DNS Client has no ill effects...
Actually, it did have ill effects. IE11 started using more CPU and Super AntiSpyware strted finding aware like crazy. Reenabling DNS client restored things to normal.

The settings below should work for you

If you have a lot of devices on your network and are not sure what IP's are available use PowerShell to find an unused IP
Code:
1..255 | % {echo "192.168.1.$_"; ping -n 1 -w 100 192.168.1.$_ | Select-String ttl}
Attachment 399973

Note:
Unfortunately If you have any smartphones on your network they will more than likely will not respond to ping's .
All that did was break my connection. I tried rebooting and no dice. I had to restore the original settings before I could get back onto the internet.

For some reason you have 2 gateways set which will give problems. Set your dns to 208.67.220.220 & 208.67.222.222
The first run test reset the proxy setting check IE and FF that its not been reset having a proxy is either AV or malware
When you drop you dont actually drop if you look at the test run when its dropped it connected to the internet ok
Check your HD as it says in report some files are showing corrupt
Spybot stays. I've used it for years without any problems and it does block and remove pretty much all adware and spyware. When I disabled it, I started getting adware on my computer again.

I don't use Firefox. Their cookie control sucks!

Sorry for the delay getting back to you all. This has been the worst allergy season ever (and still is). I also had to waste time dealing with Malwarebytes Protection Module not turning on upon reboot, setting up a new duplexing ADF scanner, breaking in (i.e. learning how to use it) a new PDF creation/editing program to replace Adobe Acrobat Standard XI (which reaches EOL 10/15/2017 and it's replacement is cloud and subscription based), and finding a way to replace the Adobe Add On in IE11.

I'm still getting the internet drop outs.

Sorry if you answered this already I just shot to the bottom of the page instead of reading all the replies since my last post.
